Dear Mary & Joseph Retreat Center Community Members,
Face coverings are required of all, regardless of vaccination status, in any indoor setting, except when eating or drinking.
Face coverings are required for unvaccinated individuals in any outdoor setting where six-foot social distancing is not possible.
Upon entering these grounds and while staying here, individuals are encouraged to be attentive to their own physical condition, self-assess, and self-attest to the following: (a) they are not experiencing any symptom of illness such as cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell; (b) they have not been diagnosed with Covid-19, and do not believe they have been exposed recently to someone with a suspected or confirmed case; (c) they are following applicable guidelines as much as possible to limit their exposure to Covid-19.
During 2020-21, Covid-19 has considerably impacted our financial situation. We are funded mostly by income from our spiritual programs and guest services, as well as donations, for which we are greatly appreciative. We are doing our best to carefully steward our existing resources to keep our beautiful facilities and dedicated hard-working staff intact. If you are able to donate to help us, please consider making a gift now.
